Four Famous (And Wacky) Wedding Themes For Movie-Loving Couples

Many couples in love dream of a traditional wedding, complete with a white cake, lovely flowers and a long white gown. Well, you’re not like those couples. You’re thinking of something that’s fabulous, but unique, and will show your love for a certain movie. With the many fun themes today, that’s not hard to do. Movie wedding themes can be very subtle or totally out of this world. If you’re looking for the latter, here are a few ideas you might want to try.

Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi: Moulin Rouge Theme

Think about it: a stage blazing with fiery theater lights, an extravagant backdrop, and music, music, music. Your bridesmaids are courtesans wearing dazzling outfits, while you, the bride, will look like the sexy Satine, dressed from head to toe in silk and a corset. Your husband-to-be will be Christian, spouting poetry and declaring his undying love for you. All of this will be held in a Paris-style cabaret, at night.

If you and your partner love dancing, music and the spotlight, a Moulin Rouge theme will suit you fine. Hey, if you’re lucky (or really, really rich), you might even ask Baz Luhrmann coordinate the wedding for you.

Before You Say “I Do”
Ask your guests to come in can-can costumes. Feathers, sequins, ostrich feathers and satin gloves are a must. Prepare dance numbers and ask someone to sing songs from the film, like the romantic “Come What May” and the sexy “Lady Marmalade”. Don’t forget the French champagne and cocktails!

Live Long And Prosper: Star Trek Theme

Space may be the final frontier, but, getting married there is not possible (at least, not yet). The closest thing you can get is to have a Star Trek themed wedding. If you and your significant other are Trekkies, then you’ll love this theme. Imagine you’re Uhura and Spock, with the Klingons and Ferengi in attendance. Say your vows at the USS Enterprise’s bridge, while dressed in Starfleet uniforms. It’s a wedding unlike anything you’ll see in this galaxy.

You can go to Vegas and find a Star Trek chapel that will give you your dream wedding, or you can prepare your own wedding. It depends on your budget and your creativity!

Before You Say “I Do”
A celestial and sparkling gown will suit the bride, while the groom can wear a captain’s uniform. Use the theme music of the original series for the bridal march. Get a wedding cake in the shape of the Starship Enterprise. Finally, why not say “Aye, aye, Sir”, instead of “I do”?

Relive The Magic: Harry Potter Theme

So you can’t get enough of The Boy Who Lived and his wizarding friends. If you’re Potter supporters, why not inject this fun theme into your wedding? It’ll be perfect: the venue would be the Hogwarts castle (an old-fashioned hotel would do), the invitations written on parchments, and the guests will have to come in wizard robes, complete with wands and broomsticks. You can ask “Dumbledore” to preside over the ceremony.

One tip: This wedding theme is fun, but try not to go overboard. Otherwise, your intimate event will end up like a kiddie birthday party.

An Intergalactic Love Affair: Star Wars Theme

Who isn’t familiar with Luke Skywalker and the evil Sith Darth Vader? Perhaps, you can give this adventurous tale a romatic twist, just like this couple. You and your spouse-to-be can join together like Hans Solo and Leia, or like Anakin and Amidala. Ask your guests to come in their favorite costumes, Jedi or alien. Use the opening music for the bridal march.

Before You Say “I Do”
Top your wedding cake with Star Wars figurine, or model the cake after a famous ship. Name treats after Star wars characters, such as “Chewbacca Chicken” or “Yoda frozen yogurt” (Learn how to decorate a wedding cake). Maybe you can even ask the minister to say “May the force be with you” at the end of the ceremony.

Any hardcore fan wants to feel as if they’ve really stepped into the film, even on their wedding day. So what are you waiting for? Get your lists out, your costumes dry-cleaned, and prepare to have a unique and wonderful time at your themed wedding. It’s a romantic and out-of-this-world affair everyone will enjoy!
